  • Hi,
    I`ve got a problem. On my blog I have a lot of pages, but no default Home page. And I want one. How can I get it ?
    Ive put a link in the header that takes to me home page, but it would be a lot easier if Id had a Home Page link in the Pages list.
    Can anybody help me ?

  • I’ve got a similair question. I was wondering how to turn a page into a link to the default start page.
    In some themes there is a HOME button, in some themes there’s not.
    I use the Black Energy 1.0 (by qualitywordpress)theme on my WordPress version 2.6.2.

    There is a nice little plugin called page links to at http://txfx.net/code/wordpress/page-links-to/ which allows you to define a page so that it appears in the nav bar, but instead of going to a wordpress “page” it just goes to another url or a wordpress page if you have the url.

    In your case, you would create a page titled “Home” and just link it to the url or your home page. Since it’s a page, it will appear in the nav menu and in the page widget. It’s easy to add a home page button to your nav bar by a simple code addition but it would not appear in the page widget.

    And if I don’t want all pages appear in the nav menu?
    I think I have to change header.php

    <!-- Menu -->
    		<div id="header-menu">
    			<ul>
    				<?php wp_list_pages('title_li=&depth=-1'); ?>
    			</ul>
    		</div>
    		<!-- /Menu -->

    But what should I change there to make for instance 4 nav menu buttons and remove the pages?
    I think I’ll have to remove ‘<?php wp_list_pages(‘title_li=&depth=-1′); ?>’ and put some links in stead of it?

    you can exclude pages by hard coding it into the header.php like

    <?php wp_list_pages(‘title_li=&sort_column=menu_order&exclude=62,75’); ?>

    or you can use a plugin like pagemash

    Go to Settings / Reading

    For ‘Front page displays’ choose: ‘A static page’

    Then choose which of the pages you have created will be your frontpage.

    Thank you all !

    That plug-in is great !
